Abstract

Time patterns of karst denudation in northwest Georgia (U.S.A.) were investigated at three spring sites for 12 months and at five stream sites for 10 years. Rainfall was evenly distributed and showed no significant seasonality. At the springs, as well as the streams, water hardness was largely controlled by discharge. Time cycles in available water are the key controlling factor of denudation, and amounts of available soil CO[2] may not be as important in the temporal patterns of karst downwearing as has been believed previously
